  • WANTED ALIVE: KEYBOARD PLAYER WITH LEAD SINGING ABILITIES The planets have aligned and after traveling from a distant galaxy light years away, we have been revived from suspended animation in Ottawa (why here?) to reform “THE EVERLASTIN’ YEAHS” (copyright), a gigging 60's cover band. Were you there but REMEMBER EVERYTHING? Well, we remember everything, are younger than that now and are looking for a kindred spirit in the form of A LEAD SINGING KEYBOARD PLAYER. We have just had our first session and are presently comprised of a lead singer, a lead singer/rhythm guitarist, a lead guitarist, a bassist and a drummer. Hello, please post this ad. Thanks! Are you easy going, gracious about the gift of music, tend to have a creative rather than a literal approach, know the sound of one hand clapping, and yet refuse to say “groovy”? Your musical ability is important but so is getting along with the other players, and being committed. If this paragraph strikes a chord with you then you've come to the right place! We'd like to do one hit wonder garage songs, tunes from the "Ottawa Rocks" compilation, Kinks, Buffalo Springfield, Moby Grape, Byrds, early Rolling Stones, pre "Tommy" Who, Doors, Animals, Rascals, Yardbirds, Vanilla Fudge, Ugly Ducklings, Shadows of Knight, Paul Revere & the Raiders (eh!?), Lovin' Spoonful etc., maybe some R & B (Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter etc.) .... and any 60’s songs you want to try. We are open! Let’s put it four wheel low and get off THE BEATEN TRACK while we still can! We'll practice once every two weeks, on Saturdays and you will have to share the cost of practice space at $14.00 for four hours. Please, no BIG EGOS (that means you, Arnold). We want this to work and have fun doing it! Contact Brian and tell us about yourself! Thanks!
